Thursday did not go as planned. I did get over to Wal-Mart to get a new bike tube for the tire and some tire levers, but most of the morning was spent on the job hunt, so I didn’t have time to do much else until the afternoon. By the time I got back from Wal-Mart my only options were to fix and ride the bike or head to my dad’s house to do laundry.
So I did not get out on the bike on Thursday thus there will be no Bike Update today.
Yesterday’s Meal Plan
Breakfast – Tuna fish and avocado
Lunch – Red beans with ham
Dinner – Small piece of breakfast sausage, small piece of corned beef.
Snack – Handful of wasabi peas
Calories – 1250
Never seem to be able to plan well for Thursday. I was at my dad’s house so for dinner I just tried to find some meat which happened to be a small piece of breakfast sausage he already had cooked and a piece of corned beef.
The red beans for lunch came courtesy of my step-dad. Problem is they tasted too darn good and the 2 portions accidentally became one….
I was going to post another cat picture here but I decided 2 cats in one day would make you think I was the grumpy old cat man. I have no cats. I currently have no pets, but I did actually put water in my little aquarium yesterday. I think I’ll get some fish and start the aquarium again for the first time in 5 years.
Today I am making my own red beans which won’t be a problem because unlike my step-dad, I don’t add salt so they don’t taste remotely as good as his.
Tip Of The Day
Get off your butt. I took Wednesday off and Thursday too. I know that laziness returns easily and becomes a habit again so I know I need to hit it and hit it hard today. As soon as I am done here, I will get that tire fixed and I will be out the door into that miserable wind (although I may like the wind now that the temps are up to 85 here).
Diets aren’t so hard to comprehend. The basic core of every diet is “Eat Less & Move More.”
Once you have added exercise into your new lifestyle, be careful not to slack too many days in a row because those old lazy habits creep back in and tack control faster than you think.
I need to make sure I stop that Lazy Monster from taking back control, so I will hit that levee today and I plan to hit the levee real hard on Saturday.
Don’t let the Lazy Monster control your life and warp you into a couch potatoe (shout out to Dan Quayle) again.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow.
